Not too many films devoted to the life and relationships of older people. But if you take into account how many of them really good... And it is clear: money to the creators of such movies definitely not will bring. The more valuable than this film.

Meanwhile, this theme (and the death) should worry everyone. After all, if we are lucky or not lucky, we all find ourselves in place the heroes of this picture. It when the number of deaths of people you know loved, is much greater than the one who even with you.

The two main characters of the painting have lost their spouses and, although they have a certain way of life, they are alone. Yes, the main character has a male social circle, a character — best friend, but from loneliness at night is not saved.

Also in the film there is the conflict between fathers and children, which shows that even grown up children according to remain selfish. And believe their elderly parents must drop everything and first call them to come to him help. Therefore, the film is not is a solid positive effect. However, and drama, too. It ending it all gives more reason for optimism than Vice versa.

This film is a clear proof that in old main and the leading role played by the quality of the script that allows even an ordinary life story to show fresh and interesting.

What can I say about the main characters in the movie in the performance of Jane Fonda (Eddie) and Robert Redford (Louis)? In addition to good — nothing. Huge acting experience and professionalism for face. Really don't know how to relate to other critical actors in real life, but in the film they can perfectly show all stages of development of relations from shyness and awkwardness to care and love.

However, it is not disappoint and secondary actors. Ian Armitage (the grandson of Eddie) have shown excellent work and from the boy who has become alienated and plays on the phone becomes alive and a curious child. Matthias Sonants (son of Eddie) — the image of a confused and need the mother of his son. Judy Greer (daughter of Louis) played not a big role, but quite well.

Thus, this movie is well told and shows history, perfectly played by the actors and not frail meaning. Exactly all the components that need to a good movie.

Do not care read the poem of Marina Boikova "man needs man", whose name and became the title of this review. It is not great, but it is beautifully expressed all those ideas that seem to this film. As sorry there are consequences for plagiarism, and also, IMDb does not allow to insert the verses, does not it?

But seriously — nice view all good.

Warm is a movie, pure and sincere. We can assume that the Director Ritesh Batra concerned with the topic of old age and we are waiting on, because in 2017, he took two film this. The first "premonition of the end" with Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling, and second this beautiful name "Our souls but nights". If his first British film, the Director has invited English actors, the second for its U.S. the picture Batra is working with American actors, famous, prominent personalities like Jane Fonda and Robert Redford.

This new film takes us in the story of two elderly and lonely people. Eddie and Louise are living at the neighborhood. It without a wife, and she the husband as children their lives, and the heroes are all alone. Eddie comes to with Louise proposal to sleep together at night in the same bed. It is neither in sex, no, just old heroes alone and lacks intimacy and communication. Louise agrees, and their idea is something very important in the both of them, because the characters closer together...

It is a film about the loneliness, about the final stage of our life (as if it is vulgar not sounded), of love, friendship, soul mate. I want to say that the romance turned out wonderful. This story warms the hearts of men and gives something warm. The film is good, and his story is not devoid of meaning. The main characters are decent people, but fate both were thorny, and errors they have made. In the age of waited a lot of thoughts about the past, but that not someone to talk — it's scary. Eddie did a brave thing, offering will come closer to each friend. Who would know heroes so much will continue to need each friend.

And the Fund, and Redford both the two esteemed actor. Have them dizzy acting career. So many different roles, good movies, bad movies, so many awards and nominations. They nothing anyone can't prove, both the actor has invested significant contribution to film, still they are invited to a great movie, they play a role. You can you imagine that Jane Fonda was born in 1937 and Robert Redford 1936?! And still then them turn out the light. I mean it acting. Already in old age both the actor also played a clean and great start.

By the way, a very young actor, Ian Armitage still I remember with the TV series "Big little lies," and in this film the boy is playing well. From his memorable appearance, and think, how he we still not once surprise. Prepared from him a future star.

"Our souls at the night" — American melodrama 2017. Another film Ritash Batra turned out so tender and spiritual revelation. It is the movie is not for all those who loves that kind of heart and associated with most important — feelings. Thank you and happy viewing! All good mood and great movies.
